Alex Young Solo Draws Near

Juxtapoz // Sunday, 28 Mar 2010

Exploring a variety of media and form, whilst drawing from a rich reservoir of influences that ranges from classical to contemporary art disciplines, Young is an interesting new artist on the scene.

 

 

 

His fluid and finely detailed pointillist style portraits - reminiscent of the photorealist master Chuck Close - are meticulously rendered in spray paint and then lavished with fine illustration detail and multi-layered symbolism to elicit a multitude of narrative strands.

 

 

 

In contrast, Young’s heavily stylized illustrations are driven by a discernibly pop surrealist manifesto: that is to create something purely based on aesthetic, or as Young would put it, that’s simply “Rad for rad’s sake.”
